I LOVE to read! Escaping into a good book is my favorite way to unwind and recharge. And if I’m reading said book while laying on a beach, sipping wine or cuddling a cat, I am in absolute heaven. Books and reading are such an important part of my life, and I’d love for you to along read with me!
In the Read section of the blog, I’ll share with you what books I’m loving right now and why.
What You Can Expect
When it comes to novels, I love reading about complex relationships, family dynamics, crazy people, weddings and school. Books with strong female characters or set in the South are always on my “to be read” list. I also cannot resist a chilling thriller or mystery. My favorite writers are Emily Giffin, Peter Swanson, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Sylvia Plath.
Frankly, I love just about any kind of fiction, with the exception of Sci-Fi or Fantasy. My brain just does not work that way. For example, I’ve read The Time Traveler’s Wife and seen the movie multiple times. Yet I still struggle with the logistics of the time traveling aspect. I always get caught up wondering, “How is he actually time traveling? Is he using a spaceship or can he fly? How does he know where in time to go? Why does he always arrive naked?”
See what I mean? My brain just cannot with fantasy!
On the other hand, I like to pair whatever novel I’m reading with a non-fiction book. I’m kind of a nerd in that I love to learn, so I gravitate toward non-fiction that will help me grow professionally.
